United States suspends aid to Sudan

The United States froze financial aid to Sudan in the amount of $ 700 million in connection with the latest events in Khartoum, reports RT.

This was announced by the head of the press service of the US Department of State Ned Price.

The representative of the department noted that the allocated funds were designed to support the country’s transition to democracy.

According to Price, the American side also insists on the restoration of power of the transitional government under the leadership of civilians and the immediate release of all arrested politicians.

“We are ready to go to any measures necessary to bring to justice those who may try to ignore the will and hopes of the people of Sudan,” – said a spokesman for the department.

Recall that on Monday, October 25, the military from the Sovereign Council arrested the Prime Minister of Sudan, Abdullah Hamduk. The ministers of communications, information, finance and industry were also detained in the country.

The head of the transitional Sovereign Council of Sudan, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, in turn, declared a state of emergency in the country, and also announced the dissolution of the Cabinet.
